The Pig Museum has more than 20 theme exhibition halls with an area of nearly 1,000 square meters, three-story exhibition area, and more than 50,000 exhibits, all of which come from the collection of the Erika Wilhelmer family related to pigs. In the museum, you can mobilize all your body's senses to appreciate, listen or touch, to find all kinds of novel and interesting things. And in every corner of the museum, there will be such a naive little pig, sitting in a tight-knit manner, or coy and lazy, making people dizzying. The most surprising room with a mountain of pigs is really the pig mountain and the sea of pigs. In addition, there are some pigs hidden here that are not suitable for children. There is a phrase Schwein haben in German, which literally translates as "there is a little pig", which actually means good luck and good luck, because pigs have been a symbol of luck since the Germanic era. The Wilhelmer family has also been operating restaurants. The restaurants, cafes and beer gardens in the Piggy Museum can provide a variety of German signature dishes, coffee and desserts. It is said that tonkatsu is famous, but it is a pity that Brother Frank has been in Esslingen. The town is booked for dinner
The theme of the piglet museum, I didn't expect the Germans to respect pigs so high.
While drinking at the Collegium Wirtemberg winery, Brother Frank was already studying the place for dinner. But you can't always eat, first go to a Schweine Museum activity that even the locals have never been to. This is the world’s largest pig-themed museum. It’s not far from the Mercedes-Benz Museum on the Neckar River. It’s about two kilometers to the door. It’s quiet all around, and the car can stop at will. When it arrives, there is a gap in the cloudy sky. Illuminated at the main entrance of the museum. The Pig Museum is currently located in the administration building of a century-old slaughterhouse, which opened on May 1, 2010. Part of the buildings of the slaughterhouse are no longer there, but the administrative building, gatehouse and its auxiliary buildings have been fortunately preserved and have been included in the protection of local cultural relics. There are many large pigs on the grass at the entrance, as well as the 13-meter-long, 4-meter-high, 2.6-meter-wide, and more than ten-ton piggy tram that is still being cleaned and refurbished just after being received. 23 years old cute pink piggy tram, take the U9 subway in Stuttgart, get off at Schlachthof station, walk 200 meters, you can see this pink piggy tram
This shop does not really have live pigs to see, but there are many things to see about pigs. It can be said that any "museum" that can be imagined related to pigs has it, and it is a small collection of exhibitions. The things inside are quite fun. Although I don't think the price/performance ratio is very high, it should have cost a lot of money to get this museum because there are so many things inside. There are all kinds of toys, collectibles, and the pork restaurant next to them.
The Piggy Museum is very unique and interesting.
for all you pig lovers out there, this is the perfect place to go to cure your obsession. restaurant and museum. excellent beer garten too.
This place is full of pigs. Pigs of all sizes and shapes. Cartoons, statutes, biology. Fun for all ages.
Absolutely insane but awesome museum. Who knew there was so much pig-themed tack in the world? Some of the more abstract art was quirky and fun.
Ok, when me and my wife heard there was a museum dedicated to pigs we had to check it. We took a hop on hop off tour through Stuttgart, and reached this museum. The place has lots of different statues...
one can ever see too much "pork" items! Not very well maintained, some items lack care but overall interesting and amusing. EUR6,9 to access, a bit too much for the experience
